The Medical and Bioinformatics Professional Science Master's (PSM) degree program has a course design common to all three GVSU PSM programs:
Common characteristics of all three PSM programs are:
Overall requirements for the MS in Medical and Bioinformatics consist of 36 credits, with a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
Consistent with Grand Valley policy, all courses must be completed within 8 consecutive years from entry into the first graduate course.
Common courses are shared among the three PSM programs to encourage interdisciplinary team work. The specific course requirements include:
Four Common Core Courses (12 cr.)
Common Seminar Course (2 cr.)
Five Directed Courses (15 cr.)
CIS 677 High-Performance Computing andCIS 678 Machine Learning
CIS 665 Clinical Information Systems, and either:
Internship (4 cr.)
Capstone Course (3 cr.)
A certificate in the area of Biomedical Informatics is awarded to a student who completes a content area. Admission criteria for a certificate program are identical to admission criteria for the master’s degree program. Certificate candidates enroll in the standard master’s degree program courses, with grading criteria being identical. Should a certificate candidate decide to change to the master’s degree program, all coursework taken toward the certificate will apply to his or her master’s degree program. The following certificate require a 3-course sequence, which totals 9 credit hours:
